Breathing Room is an excellent and well-written book that addresses the issue of indoor air pollution. The book contains activities and readings related to locating air pollutants, the concept of parts per million, growing mold and the conditions it requires, radon gas, particulate and filters, and mystery illnesses. The book is easy to read and is well illustrated. This book should be a part of every biology teacher’s classroom.

This book is part of a series of books developed by Miami University’s Terrific Science Press through a Science Education Partnership Award from the National Institutes of Health. Students and parents can use each book in the series to conduct simple at-home experiments to provide insight into health and safety issues. The books include a set of challenges and activities such as puzzles and art projects. Teachers could use these books as a source for ideas for classroom activities as well as for enrichment projects. It’s a shame these aren’t duplicator books, but the cost is low and a class set of the books is affordable. The series has its own website, and each book contains references and a bibliography." "
